For the past 30 years, Tamaki Māori Village has been an iconic destination in Rotorua– the most award-winning cultural attraction in New Zealand and was voted the 7th best experience in the world by TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice award in 2018.

We believe in making a positive social impact in our communities and offer high quality learning experiences through our collection of acclaimed and authentic cultural products. Interactive and hands-on lessons are offered by our expert Tamaki team. This is something that can’t be duplicated in the classroom.


Interactive lessons set within an authentic, pre-European Māori village is something that can’t be duplicated in the classroom.


Programs are customised to the learning outcomes of each class including learning level, age, budget and time available.


Designed to give maximum insight into pre-European times, subjects on offer include the Treaty of Waitangi, village life and Māori Arts.

We work with the Rotorua Education Network, a tourism collective dedicated to providing high quality, out-of-classroom experiences for students nationwide. For more information, please visit the Rotorua Education Network website.
